16.2.0.7 I.P.S.s Update

I really don't know what is going on.  I just Ran Norton LiveUpdate and Updated by I.P.S.s - but the Date is January 09, 2009 Definitions in the History.  I then look and see that a January 12, Update has been Released.  Can someone explain to me what is going on with Norton 2009 I.P.S.s.  So, not only have I not got the January 05 Update, I ahve not got the January 12 (Today's) Update.  I seem to be getting Norton 2007 and Earlier Signatures; anyone else in the same Position as me?

Re: 16.2.0.7 I.P.S.s Update

I think it is the latest Signatures. Go to the Intrusion Prevention/Intrusion Exclusion and you will find :FTP FlashGet Response BO /  HTTP Ffdshow URL Buffer Overflow / MSIE SSReader Ultra Star Reader ActiveX Ctrl LoadPage BO.

These are new signatures that have been added

It isn't the Latest.  If you look on the Web Page, on January 09, 2009, there was an Update for Norton 2007 and Earlier Products which has just been Released for Norton 2009/2008 Products - which is something I cannot understand.  If you also Click on to the January 12, 2009, Norton 2008/2009 Update, there were over 70 Signatures Modified; if you look in your History, you will see that the Date is 20090109.001 and only about 30 Signatures Added.

And, might I add, that, on December 20, 2008, there was an I.P.S.s Update which Norton 2008/2009 Products got.  On January 05, 2009, there was an Update Released which Norton 2008/2009 Products did not get and now, the same thing has happened again (above).

I am very concerned by this and would like to know why this is happening.
